About the United Nations Public Service Awards and Day

 

The United Nations Public Service Awards is the most prestigious international recognition of excellence in public service. It rewards the creative achievements and contributions of public service institutions that lead to a more effective and responsive public administration in countries worldwide. Through an annual competition, the UN Public Service Awards promotes the role, professionalism and visibility of public service.

 

The UN Public Service Day intends to celebrate the value and virtue of public service to the community; highlight the contribution of public service in the development process; recognize the work of public servants, and encourage young people to pursue careers in the public sector. Since the first Awards Ceremony in 2003, the United Nations has received an increasing number of submissions from all around the world.

 

 

2023 United Nations Public Service Awards takes a break

 

As the UNPSA programme marks its 20th anniversary in 2023 and at the midway point to the year 2030, a comprehensive review of the UNPSA has been undertaken to assess the effectiveness of the programme and make necessary adjustments to better promote and disseminate innovations in the public sector.

 

The 2023 UNPS Awards will take a break this year while recommendations from the review are implemented. More information on the new UNPSA programme is expected to be available in June 2023.

 

To help us improve the programme, please take few minutes to participate in the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/UNPSA-Survey.

 

The Survey will close 02 October 2022, at midnigt EDT.
